Havertz produced a moment of peak sh*thousery against Madrid

Chelsea secured their place in the Champions League final for the first time in nine years after recording a 3-1 aggregate victory over Real Madrid.

The Blues went into their second leg tie at Stamford Bridge last night off the back of a credible 1-1 draw in Madrid, where they caused the home side plenty of problems in both halves.

Thomas Tuchel’s side almost went behind early on when Karim Benzema forced a sublime save out of Edouard Mendy, but Timo Werner put them ahead on 27 minutes with a rebounded header from a yard out.

They then put the tie beyond Real Madrid late in the second half through Mason Mount.

And with the game all but over, Kai Havertz decided to produce a textbook piece of s**thousery.

When Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos ran over to pick the ball up for a Real free kick, the Chelsea midfielder feigned to pick it up himself before kicking it between both men with his leading foot.

After a difficult start to life at Stamford Bridge, during which he tested positive for COVID-19 and suffered several injuries, Havertz now appears to be getting back to his best.

The 21-year-old scored twice against Fulham in the Premier League last weekend, and was credited with the assist for Werner’s first goal on Wednesday night.

He has also completed 90 minutes for two games in succession – only the fourth time that has happened during his Chelsea career.

Havertz had chances to score again on Wednesday but although he didn’t take them, the fact that he is getting in such promising positions and making himself a threat means it shouldn’t be too long before he hits his goalscoring stride.

Chelsea are next in Premier League action on Saturday when they take on fellow Champions League finalists Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

A week later, they contest the FA Cup final against Leicester City at Wembley. It’s sure to be a busy month for Tuchel and his side.
